I know what you're thinking, "why would I heat up the house baking cobbler?", and that's exactly why we're taking this recipe outside. Perfect to make while entertaining at your next barbecue, this cobbler can bake on the barbecue while you and your guests eat dinner. 

Peach Cobbler is a classic dessert. It’s best known for being enjoyed in the Southern US, on wrap-around porches, by southern belles while sipping sweet tea. Here in Canada, we grill our cobbler, enjoy it in igloos, and wash it down with an ice-cold beer. It’s amazing how different we are, culturally, eh?
